Geisinger Medical Center earns Magnet accreditation for third time
Recently, approximately 200 members of the Geisinger Medical Center (GMC) nursing team gathered to take a very special phone call. Their colleagues at Geisinger Shamokin Area Community Hospital (GSACH) were conferenced in via video. A representative from the American Nurses Credentialing Center informed the group that GMC and GSACH were reaccredited with Magnet status.
This is GMC’s first Magnet designation with GSACH – and its third in a row – and it is one of just 29 Magnet organizations in Pennsylvania. Magnet status is awarded to healthcare organizations that have demonstrated an environment of excellence for nursing practice and patient care. Just seven percent of hospitals nationwide have received Magnet designation. At right, GMC nurses react to the news.
